Hornsey & Wood Green MP Lynne Featherstone is seeking assurances that

all overground train routes in London will have Oyster Pay As You Go (PAYG) services by September 2009 if the move is confirmed.

She has written to Mayor Boris Johnson demanding confirmation that First Capital Connect Trains in Hornsey and Wood Green will be included in the scheme and is scheduled to meet Transport for London bosses next week.

Ms Featherstone said: "The people of Hornsey and Wood Green have been led up the garden path by vague promises that they will soon get PAYG on the trains.

"Enough is enough - we need full assurances from the Mayor and TfL that the system will go live here in Hornsey and Wood Green in September. I am writing to the London Mayor for confirmation, and meeting up with Transport for London to demand that promises are finally turned into action.
